My guess is that where Thaao is concerned, he knows that the fans who have followed his career will continue to do so, with or without DAYS. And the ones who think he's an arrogant ass will continue to do so, no matter what he says.

Good post, Rick.
I applaud Thaoo's honesty and he's entitled to his view. I, personally, feel he could've said some things differently in the Fairman interview to get his message across. Same goes for this post. I felt the "lack of insights" part was not needed and that he could've went about saying what he meant differently but, again, that's just ME. Thaoo is who he is. He's always been blunt and to the point and I don't mind that. I actually find it refreshing. However, that doesn't mean I have to agree with everything he says and because I don't that doesn't mean I lack insight. That is what that bothers me but whatever. He's entitled and the one thing I will say is he is very good to his fans. That can't be disputed and I applaud that.
I'm happy to hear LeAnn will be back, even if it's for one show. I wasn't expecting that at all. I'm excited about the stuff he is shooting with Ari and Jay. Sounds good and it seems alot of people like to work with Ari.
Not shocked that Joe is upset. I would think he was upset in the 90's too when Thaoo was written out. Joe has lost many of his scene partners in the past few months (Dee, Drake, Thaoo) so it's no surprise he is angry. I do expect him to be gone by the end of the year. As soon as the shit hits the fan and EJ goes all out bad again, I think Joe's time as Stefano will be up.
I am also glad that at least Leann will get one more episode. Even that is more than I expected.
Joe Mascolo is not in an easy position. He's watching all of his co-stars he's worked with for decades being fired. All he does as Stefano is lecture EJ and babysit. Unless he's really hard up for paychecks, I don't think he's going to put up with too much more of this.
